Whether a person has been referred or has self-referred, social prescribing helps support our community and can improve a person’s health and wellbeing. A recent study by the National Institute Health & Care Research (link) found that social prescribing schemes increase patients’ confidence, motivation and the skills to manage their own wellbeing.
“I cannot stand the words ‘Get over it’. All of us are under such pressure to put our problems in the past tense. Slow down. Don’t allow others to hurry your healing. It is a process, one that may take years, occasionally, even a lifetime – and that’s OK.”

How we help
Social prescribing has also been known to help to address non-medical needs such as loneliness and financial difficulties. We understand that being in an open, wholesome environment can be of great benefit to many. There is always something to do at the farm and we offer opportunities for people to come along and find something that may assist them, all whilst helping us keep the charity running.
PS: You might like to bring a bag of carrots to make friends with some of the animals here!
How your business can help us:
Many companies have initiated ‘give back’ schemes where employees are provided with a day or more to work in the local community. Here at Uncle Paul’s Chilli Charity we welcome such initiatives as we always need help around the farm. Whether it is help looking after our animals (horses, sheep, goats, lamas & poultry), harvesting chillies, general maintenance, planting and more, we’ll have a job waiting for your employees. Contact us today to arrange your ‘give back’ days.
